Joyful Living

New Patient Paperwork

Welcome! We look forward to working with you.  Please print and fill out the following new patient forms or arrive 15 minutes before your first appointment to fill the paperwork out in our office.

New Patient Paperwork

First Appointment

Your first acupuncture appointment will be 90 minutes long.  We will go through a detailed health history so that we can look at your health from many different angles to get a complete picture.  We will discuss your goals and you will have your first acupuncture treatment.  The treatment itself can last between 20 to 45 minutes, depending on your condition and goals.  At this time we will discuss if additional modalities would be beneficial to incorporate.  We will work in partnership with you to set a treatment plan that best addresses your health needs and talk through what appointment style will help you do this most effectively.  Most treatment plans will consist of a combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine used alone and ones with an overlap of additional modalities.

We are focused on providing individualized care and will discuss a follow-up plan for you and any resources or modalities that could be beneficial in supporting your health.

* Its a good idea to wear comfortable clothes if possible, to have eaten before your treatment, but not be extremely full.  Please feel free to call if you have any questions.  We look forward to working with you!

Return office visits

Return office visits are 60 minutes. In this time we will discuss changes since your last treatment and modify the treatment according to your needs.

We offer a couple different styles of treatments to most effectively serve you.

Cancellation Policy

We understand that you may need to change a scheduled appointment time. In the event that you cannot make your scheduled appointment, please call within 24 business hours to cancel.
